Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great value hotel
My wife and I stayed for two nights to see the famous Bath Xmas Market. Neither the hotel nor the market disappointed. The hotel seems pretty new and everything has that "just installed" look. The staff were very friendly and gave us two great tips for somewhere to go for an evening meal. Immediately opposite the hotel is an Indian restaurant, The Mint Room, where we had easily the best Indian food I have ever tasted (and I have worked and travelled extensively in India!). On the second night we were recommended to try a little family-run Italian restaurant just a couple of minutes walk away. Again a really good meal.
I thought at first the car park was expensive at £8 per night, but then remembered that the first time I visited Bath some 20 years ago I paid £9 per night to park, staying at a different hotel. Parking is scarce in the city and the price reflects this. The only disappointment was the very limited range of evening food available; just pizzas. If anyone is thinking of a stay in Bath, I can certainly recommend this Holiday Inn Express, and if you find yourself in Bath centre be sure to try the coffee at Colonna and Small's in Chapel Row for an unbelievable range of exotic and speciality coffees.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by michael27 Excellent facilities but poor reception experience
Unlike previous stays we found arriving at 3.20 0n4 dec cheerless and unwelcoming.
Apart from that stay was up to your usual high standard.

It was a bit expensive, but for Bath at Christmas time wasn't too bad. It was nice and quiet despite being busy. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable. The room was basic but very comfy. Having free Wi-Fi in the room was a great benefit. The 'brekkie' was a continental and inclusive in the price, so we missed the bacon, mushrooms and toms etc.
